You can quibble about the terms: nationalism, white nationalism, or racism.  But its proponents favor an America where white people remain front and center, in positions of power and influence. 

And there is, not surprisingly, a response.  It includes a speaker and film series about confronting white nationalism, presented in the Eugene area by Community Alliance of Lane County and Showing Up For Racial Justice (SURJ) of Springfield-Eugene.  Racial justice activist Nadia Telsey talks to us about the series and its goals.
